Mission Statement

The Kachemak Bay Conservation Society’s mission is to protect the environment of the Kachemak Bay region and greater Alaska by encouraging sustainable use and stewardship of natural resources through advocacy, education, information, and collaboration.

Kachemak Bay Conservation Society is concerned with environmental protection of the Kachemak Bay region. The organization focuses on habitat and wildlife issues, wetlands protection, water quality, logging, oil and gas leases, energy conservation, sustainability issues, and land use planning. The Society monitors environmental issues locally and statewide.

Solidarity and local action are at the core of Kachemak Bay Conservation Society's work.  

We would like to use our media platforms to help people support each other during the coronavirus pandemic. As a first step, we want to hear what kind of community organizing you think would help Homer?

K-Bay Sea Duck Party

We'll hear from speakers on the super cool life-history of sea ducks, population trends in Kachemak Bay, as well as an opportunity to meaningfully improve Alaska sea duck management. You will also have a chance to purchase a sea duck t-shirt, designed by local artist Kelsy Hardy-Place to support local Sea-Duck Conservation!

Want to help protect Alaska Sea Ducks? Please sign our petition.

The 4th Annual K-Bay Sea Duck Survey will be held on March 16. Thanks to all who have volunteered  as skippers and birders. We have 10 fully manned vessels. Impressive as usual. The Sea Duck Survey and Party are a collaboration between Kachemak Bay Conservation Society and Kachemak Bay Birders. Go Sea Ducks!
